The Heart Of Cristy

I can’t help it. This song keeps on playing on my ipod. Both Henley’s and Arie’s versions are so damn good!

As I listen to this song, I tried to check the meaning of every single word of the lyrics. I noticed that this song is not just for Sally (in another aspect though). It’s for a very dear friend who has been deeply wounded by what happened to her life. I cannot blame her, because she just gave her best to love the man that she thought will give her lifetime happiness but I think it’s all just a dream. I think it happened so fast. They haven’t got a chance to know each other more but, who would’ve thought of that if you’re inlove with each other?

People change, time flies, roads tends to lead us to some direction… All we have to do is to forgive, let live and move on. To you Cristy, I know you have accepted the reality and you have given your forgiveness. But, you have to put it all behind ‘coz life goes on and if you keep on carrying that anger, it will eat you up inside.

We love you friend and we’re always here for you. See you soon!

The Heart Of The Matter

I got the call today, I didn’t wanna hear
But I knew that it would come
An old true friend of ours was talkin’ on the phone
She said you found someone
And I thought of all the bad luck,
And all the struggles we went through
How I lost me and you lost you
What are these voices outside love’s open door
Make us throw off our contentment
And beg for something more?

I’ve been learning to live without you now
But I miss you sometimes
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning them again
I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

These times are so uncertain
There’s a yearning undefined
And people filled with rage
We all need a little tenderness
How can love survive in such a graceless age
And the trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness
They’re the very things we kill, I guess
Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms
And the work they put between us,
You know it doesn’t keep us warm

I’ve been trying to live without you now
But I miss you, baby
The more I know, the less I understand
And all the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again
I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my heart is so shattered
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

All the people in your life who’ve come and gone
They let you down, you know they hurt your pride
Better put it all behind you; cause life goes on
You keep carrin’ that anger, it’ll eat you up inside

I wanna be happily everafter
And my heart is so shattered
But I know it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
Because the flesh will get weak
And the ashes will scatter
So I’m thinkin’ about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if you don’t love me anymore
Even if you don’t love me anymore
